Caro, you don't have to buy new courses anyway.. just get out there and follow the blueprint, then test different things for yourself. you can learn a lot really quickly once you know the fundamentals that AB teaches.

When you say getting articles for your site, do you mean for the site itself? if so, you want those to target the keywords that you want to rank for. if you mean syndication, I generally choose different keywords for those.

I forgot to mention this in the blog too, but I also listen to stand up comics to improve my writing skills. I figure people pay money to hear them perform, so maybe they'll pay me money if I can write in an entertaining way... My favorite inspiration is Brian Regan :)
@Caro, I think there's a lot of value in AJP, so don't write it off yet. I think the keyword research section is maybe a bit lacking, but other than that, it's pretty much what you could expect from AB (plus all those sick auto-responders emails!).
For keyword research, go check out Niche Profit Classroom. I haven't looked at them lately, but they used to have what they called the Money Word Matrix as one of the teaser videos to get you to buy. You can watch it for free, though, and it's totally golden for keyword research.
Or you can check out my keyword research guide here (I hope it's okay to link to this...):

It's a bit long, but it pays the bills :)
@Grady, Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? I've been wanting to do that for, like, 5 years now. Just too busy. Who knows, I might try it out :)
